After SAA bailout clipped its wings, clean parastatal left in chaos
The qualifications authority has to deal with delayed certificate verifications and disgruntled retrenched employees
The SA Qualifications Authority (SAQA), which retrenched more than half of its staff earlier this month, has been burdened with delays in the verification of local qualifications and the evaluation of foreign certificates, diplomas and degrees.
In a notice to applicants, the government entity said it was going through “a transitional period that has resulted in some delays in the processing of SA and foreign evaluation applications”.
“We are doing our best to expedite applications and respond to inquiries and apologise for the inconvenience caused.”..
